The weather man has certainly worked hard at trying to bring us some rain. Rain has been in the forecast for the past two or three days, but it somehow dances all around us with not one single drop hitting the ground.
We certainly do need some rain!! It is cloudy outside this morning, so I'm praying "Dear Lord...shower us with blessings of rain today."
It is sure hard to believe that summer for my kids is almost over. School Time! Yesterday, I went shopping with Trista, to pick up
school supplies for the kids. Oh my goodness!!! This stuff is not cheap!! Our buggy held all the normal back to school supplies, like pencils, folders, glue, pens, wide ruled paper, notebooks, crayons, colored pencils, erasers, pencil sharpeners, etc...etc...etc.
As we were standing in the check out line, both Trista and I were trying to guess what the cost was going to be. I said $75.00 dollars, she said more....Guess what? she won...it was $120.00.
This expense only includes supplies....on top of that, you have school shoes, socks, school clothes, hair accessories, backpacks, and lunches!!
Starting back to school can sure put a huge dent in the family income!
I'm excited about seeing the kids each morning when they drop by for breakfast. It thrills me to know that they head out my door with full tummies, which helps them have a good start to their day.
My prayers are that this will be a great school year for the kids and teachers alike.
Enjoy the blessings of this day...
